    I have a question: I study in Leuven (where Stella Artois is brewed :) ) and I live with 4 other people in one home. We all have an internet account which we have to use in order to get on the internet (safari goes automatically to KUL netlogin and after you logged in, you can connect to the internet). The internet modem is in my room and because we don't want to drill holes to every room and place UTP cables I connected my Airport Express to the modem.
    So I plug in the Airport, make connection with my macbook and login to "KUL netlogin" and I can surf on the internet. But the problem is that the Airport kinda remembers the password (I dont really know how that works) so when someone else makes connection with the Airport he/she can surf immediately without logging in into "KUL netlogin". So he/she uses my account (and my monthly data). When you use a switch and ethernet cables, everybody has to log before he/she can surf on the internet. I want this behavior on my airport. How can I do this?

    I hope you understand what I'm trying to say. English is not my main language :)

    Go to Airport Admin and turn off "Distribute IP addresses" on the Express. This allows each computer to login independently, because the Express is not trying to give IP addresses to each one - it is letting KUL netlogin do that.

    i tried that (i thought it had something to do with that) but when i click apply settings it gives me an error. something like: DHCP address conflicts with the WAN-IP address of your Airport

    My DHCP-start address is:
    DHCP-end address is

    what can I do?
